Three Dominicans detained in Inagua
Three Dominican nationals were detained by Royal Bahamas Defence Force officers in Matthew Town, Inagua after they were rescued by the United States Coast Guard helo stationed in Matthew Town, after their vessel allegedly sank.
On Monday evening, the men were picked up on the east-south-east point of Inagua by the USCG helo after they claimed they swam ashore from a sunken skiff. They were transported to the airport on the island, where they were eventually transported to the clinic in Matthew Town.
RBDF personnel assigned to the island are providing security detail for the foreigners, who are being treated by the local medical professionals.
The Dominicans are being processed by Immigration Officials as part of the ongoing investigation.
